UltraFloor is 'blooming marvellous' at popular garden centre

UltraFloor is 'blooming marvellous' at popular garden centre

Instarmac Group plc

Contract flooring specialists, C & C Flooring (Midlands) Ltd, have used UltraFloor’s expert subfloor preparation materials to install LVT flooring at Alver Valley Garden Centre in Portsmouth.BackgroundYour Local Garden Centre have recently opened a new store in Alver Valley, Hampshire. With a reputation of supporting local suppliers, fantastic products and delicious food, it was imperative that the brand new Alver Valley Garden Centre lived up to the high design expectations these centres are known for.The ChallengeThe power floated concrete substrate was installed in December with a view for the garden centre to open in April 2022 – an extremely short time frame for the 4,500sqm job. The project also took place during the winter months and therefore the cold temperatures also needed to be considered if the project was to be completed on time.The SolutionWith over 15 years experience in the flooring sector, C & C Flooring (Midlands) Ltd knew that UltraFloor’s expert subfloor preparation materials would be up to the challenge.After waiting 28 days for the new cement substrate to fully cure, the team at C & C Flooring (Midlands) Ltd diamond ground the floor to expose the aggregate. UltraFloor Area Sales Manager, Mark Berry, tested each area prior to applying DPM IT to ensure the moisture content was less than 98% RH.Once achieved, DPM IT was applied and allowed to cure for 12 hours. DPM IT is a two component, solvent free epoxy resin system for use as a surface damp proof membrane. Designed to provide protection against subfloor moisture, DPM IT has a pot life of 45 – 75 minutes, a cure time of 5 hours and boasts a 98% RH floor moisture tolerance.Once cured, UltraFloor Prime IT Multi-surface Primer was applied in preparation for the application of Level IT Smooth.Formulated to promote adhesion to all UltraFloor smoothing underlayments, Prime IT Multi-surface Primer reduces pinholing, minimising the risk of costly failures. With a coverage rate of 200m² at 3:1 dilution, Prime IT multi-surface Primer is a must-have product for all flooring installation projects.Pump or trowel applied from 2mm to 30mm, Level IT Smooth has an extremely smooth finish, essential for installing LVT, and boasts a superior flow – perfect for larger flooring projects.With a coverage rate of approximately 5.5sqm at 3mm, Level IT Smooth is suitable for underfloor heating systems, has a working time of 20-30 minutes and can receive foot traffic after just 2-3 hours – allowing you to move on to the next part of your project quickly.The superior performance of Level IT Smooth is just one reason why this much-loved smoothing underlayment is being used on a daily basis up and down the country.Once dry, Karndean LVT was then installed across the garden centre.ResultsDue to the enormity of the project, the flooring was completed in three sections, 1,500sqm at a time. The project began in January and was completed by the end of February 2022 in plenty of time for the opening of the fantastic new garden centre.“DPM IT performed as expected and dried in very good time and was easy to work with. Level IT Smooth flowed exceptionally well and was perfect for such a large job.” Andrew Williams, Director at C & C Flooring (Midlands) Ltd.

As well as providing beautiful surroundings, safety also plays a huge part in their design decisions. It was imperative that Midlands Flooring chose the best subfloor preparation materials to create a super smooth floor, with no lumps or trip hazards, in preparation for the installation of the chosen carpet, vinyl and LVT floor coverings.The SolutionUltraFloor and Midlands Flooring have partnered regularly on several projects with UltraFloor products delivering complete confidence and assurance every time.Familiar with the outstanding performance of UltraFloor materials, Midlands Flooring were confident they would get the job done with ease and deliver the results needed on time.Before any preparation work began, the team carried out thorough moisture testing to check the subfloor relative humidity. Once satisfied, the subfloor was mechanically grinded to remove any contaminants before DPM IT damp proof membrane was applied. DPM IT is a two component, solvent free epoxy resin system for use as a surface damp proof membrane. Designed to provide protection against subfloor moisture, DPM IT has a pot life of 45 – 75 minutes, a cure time of 5 hours and boasts a 98% RH floor moisture tolerance.Once cured, the entire 4,000sqm area was primed with one neat coat of Prime IT Multi-surface Primer before applying UltraFloor Level IT Two at a 3mm depth.

With a coverage rate of 200sqm at 3:1 dilution, Prime IT Multi-surface Primer is a must-have product for all flooring installation projects.There are many reasons why Level IT Two has become UltraFloor’s most popular floor leveller. Its exceptional flow characteristics make it a very easy material to apply to a variety of subfloors in both commercial and domestic flooring projects. Its low odour formulation means this fantastic all-rounder leveller is equally suited to confined areas, proving particularly popular in the education, health and hospitality sectors.With a set time of 2.5 hours, Level IT Two can receive bonded floor coverings after just 8 hours, making it an ideal choice for projects with a tight deadline. What’s more, because Level IT Two is available as a two component system, it takes the guesswork out of mixing, reducing site errors and guaranteeing a perfect application every time.ResultsThe project took place between December 2022 and May 2023 and thanks to the fantastic performance of UltraFloor and the talented team at Midlands Flooring, the job was completed on time, with no problems.On using UltraFloor, Midlands Flooring commented: “Level IT Two has a smooth finish which required very little preparation.

Dry Installs Case Study, Manhattan Loft Project, London

The Solid Wood Flooring Company

In Manhattan Loft gardens, they have a dry install system and are going to use the recommended system from Sika, then fit the floor fully bonded with our SW890 adhesive. Installation and site visits are part of our service. With large residential tower developments, there will normally be slabs for each floor. These will take at least two years to dry out completely. This means that unless the slabs have a DPM applied there will always be a chance of moisture affecting whatever is laid on the floor be it a cradle system or dry install underfloor heating system.

VINCI Construction UK, Widnes

VINCI Construction UK, Widnes

Vebro Polymers

A global construction, energy and infrastructure organisation required a durable, chemical resistant floor coating solution with an anti-slip profile that would withstand the daily wear and tear of its internal vehicle repair and maintenance facility. VINCI Construction is part of VINCI Group, a multinational enterprise with operations in the energy, infrastructure and construction industries. Founded in 1899, the company now has a presence in over 120 countries with a global team of around 220,000 people. The Widnes facility is one of ten VINCI Construction UK locations and houses, among other facilities, a vehicle maintenance workshop where the company ensures their fleet of general and specialist vehicles. The industrial unit that houses the workshop previously had a concrete paving slab floor that proved to be uneven, unsafe, and difficult to maintain.  Not only did the new flooring solution need to address these concerns, it also needed to be both slip and chemical resistant as well as feature clearly marked automotive bays and provide enough durability to withstand frequent wheeled traffic as well as the impact of dropped tools and the weight of heavy equipment. Installed in a combination of RAL 7037 Dusty Grey and RAL 6024 Traffic Green, vebrores EP HBC was installed across the 332 m2 vehicle workshop, with the Traffic Green used to mark out the facility’s six automotive bays, before being outlined using vebrodeck PU Linemarker in Yellow. Prior to the installation of vebrores EP HBC SR – a system comprising an initial layer of vebro EP Primer followed two coats of vebro EP Universal with a broadcast of 52 mesh silica sand after the first coat for an anti-slip profile – the pre-existing concrete paving slabs were first coated with an epoxy DPM and a 20.0 mm screed to level the surface. vebrores EP HBC SR is a pigmented, solvent-free, slip-resistant high build epoxy floor coating system that is best suited to floors in medium duty processing areas where a textured, hard-wearing, chemical resistant finish is required. Available in a wide range of BS 4008 or RAL matched shades, the system is ideally suited to areas where there is a need for navigational demarcation and zoning.
